Red Poppy Dress

January 29, 2015

This is a dress I made as part of my travel wardrobe last summer! I love the red poppy print.

The bodice was made from a modern pattern (Simplicity 1803, from their “Project Runway” line), but I think the dress still has a very vintage feel. I got the fabric on a trip to France a couple years ago, and used it to make a dress in time for our next trip to France!

  1. What a great dress, a really cool pattern and it fits you like a glove.
    Love that you used that piqué fabric, for me this adds another bit of vintage-flair, it is a quite rare fabric nowadays, I kind of have the feeling. Funny enough the only patterned piqué I own I bought in France as well, maybe they have a hidden source somewhere 😉
